Shillong, Oct. 11. Master Konsam Joshua Lyngdoh of St. Anthony's Higher Secondary School, who represented the state of Meghalaya, bagged the Third Prize in the recently concluded National Science Seminar 2012 at Birla Industrial and Technological Museum, Kolkata.
Konsam Joshua Lyngdoh, a student of class IX, earlier bagged the first prizes in the inter-school science seminar both at the district and the state level. Thereafter, he was selected to represent Meghalaya in the National level Science Seminar which was held on 5th October, 2012 at Birla Industrial and Technological Museum, Kolkata.

This National Science Seminar 2012 was organised by National Council of Science Museum, Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India. The theme for the seminar was Mathematics in India: Past, Present and Future. There were 30 participants and eminent and renowned scientists from all over the country who took part in the Science Seminar.

Konsam Joshua Lyngdoh, in his concluding statement of the presentation, said that it is important that we make an all out effort to improve the state of mathematics in our country. ''To start with, learning mathematics should be made more interesting at the basic levels. We need good mathematics teachers at all levels. And to secure that, it is important that the teaching profession be made socio-economically attractive.

''There is, however, room for some cautious optimism about the future. We have institutes like the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), the Indian Statistical Institute, the Indian Institute of Science and the IITs which are making serious efforts to raise the standards of research and scholarships in mathematics.

''With all these efforts, I am sure, one day in the near future we will be able to reclaim our worthy place in world mathematics'', he said.

Joshua Lyngdoh was helped by Mrs. Phiraline Nongbet (teacher of the school) and by his parents Dr.  K. Gunamani Singh and Dr. Christina Lyngdoh. He was also accompanied his father to Kolkata for the seminar. St. Anthony's  School place on record the hard of Konsam Joshua Lyngdoh and his collaborators towards this success.
